204 job seekers hired on Independence Day Job Fair

Legazpi City – At least 204 job seekers in Bicol region have gained employment on June 12, Independence Day.

A total of 1,078 applicants looking for new work and other training opportunities registered in the Trabaho, Negosyo, Kabuhayan (TNK) job and business fair at the Ayala Malls Legazpi in celebration of the 120th Declaration of Philippine Independence.

Of this number, 153 were ‘near-hires’ on top of the 51 who were hired on the spot, said OIC Regional Director Rovelinda A. Dela Rosa of DOLE V.

Dela Rosa added that most of the hired-on-the-spot applicants were for the positions of visual inspector, service crew, office staff, finance staff, accounting staff, production operator, management trainee, encoder, IT admin and administrative staff

Meanwhile, ‘near hires’ are job applicants who may be considered as hired but need to submit additional or lacking requirements or may need to attend further interviews or tests.

They may be hired or placed depending on the outcome of their interview and compliance of pre-employment requirements of the hiring company.

HOTS and Near-Hired Applicants

One of the thousand applicants who got a job was Rosenda Decano, 22 of Brgy. Mauraro in Guinobatan town, Albay.

Decano is the eldest among the three siblings of Mr. Roden and Mrs. Violeta Decano. A graduate of a vocational course in Ligao Community College (LCC) in 2016 but found her first local employment as factory worker during the Independence Day TNK Job Fair.

“Nagpapasalamat po ako dahil nagkaroon po ng job fair ngayon. Overwhelmed po ako kasi sa two (2) years po na unemployed ako lagi na lang sinasabihan na ‘tatawagan’ ng employer – ngayon po natanggap na ako at hired-on-the-spot pa,” she shared.

She added that this is good news to her mother, 49 who is working as food vendor.

While requesting for a photo opportunity holding the tag: “I’m H.O.T.S”, Decano said with glee on her voice: “Ipapakita ko po ito kay mama kasi makakatulong na po ako sa pagpapagawa ng bahay namin.”

Decano will start with her job as factory worker on June 16, 2018.

On the other hand, Mr. Santy Barnedo, 52 of this region told DOLE Bicol that he is near hired after applying to an overseas job.

“Ang nakuha ko pong trabaho dito sa Job fair ay Carpenter sa New Zealand. For formality na lang po kasi may experience na po ako sa ibang bansa gaya ng Qatar at Saudi Arabia,” he said.

The TNK Job and Business fair gathered 44 participating employers including local and overseas which brought nearly 7,000 jobs.

DOLE Bicol has also recorded two senior high school graduates who applied during the job fair and currently waiting for the results.

Meanwhile, government agencies who offered jobs were Armed Forces of the Philippines, Philippine Navy, Philippine Statistics Authority, Region V and Department of Trade and Industry RO V.

The Department of Trade and Industry RO V (DTI) offered technical advisory services and seminars on ‘How to Start a Business’, Business Management and Project Management considering entrepreneurship as an alternative to having formal employment in establishments. On the other hand, the Technical Educational Skills and Development Authority V (TESDA) accepted/ initially processed registration of scholars in its accredited schools, and the One-Stop-Shop by the One-Stop Service Center for OFWs (OSSCO) composed of PhilHealth, Social Security System, Pag-Ibig Fund, Department of Foreign Affairs, Philippine Statistics Authority provided permits/ clearances to job applicants during the job fair.

The 2018 Independence Day was observed with the theme, "Kalayaan 2018 Pagbabagong Ipinaglaban, Alay sa Masaganang Kinabukasan.

Arch. Tirona: Yes to karate, no to guns

Archbishop Rolando Tria Tirona
MANILA (Bicol Standard) -- Learning martial arts like karate may be an alternative to toting guns for priests to protect themselves.

This is the statement of Caceres Archbishop Rolando Tria Tirona today here as he celebrated mass for the third anniversary of Pope Francis’ Encyclical Laudato Si.

"Priests cannot be like Superman or Spiderman," he said. "They should be able to protect themselves if the need arises."

This came after the murder of three priests in the Philippines in the last six months.

Priest is person of interest in death of Cam Sur woman

Jeraldyn "Ai-ai" Rapinan

BAAO, Camarines Sur (Bicol Standard) – The death of 28-year-old Jeraldyn Bulalacao Rapinan of Barangay San Jose, this town, has rocked the Roman Catholic leadership in this province after a priest was tagged by locals as a person of interest in the killing.

Rapinan’s lifeless body was dumped in a grassy portion of a roadside along Maharlika Highway at Del Pilar, San Fernando, Camarines Sur on June 15.

She was discovered with several stab wounds on her chest, and there were signs that she was strangled. Her hands and feet were bound by a yellow nylon cord, while her face was covered by a malong when she was found.

In a post this morning by Fr. Louie Occiano, he said that as parish priest, he was interviewed about the issue.

Occiano is presently the parish priest of the town, but he is not the person of interest.

He was interviewed because he is the parish priest of Baao, while the person of interest is a resident of San Jose, Baao.

"I told the reporter that we will respect the ongoing investigation," Occiano added.

Occiano also made a statement that says he is not the suspect and he is not involved in any way.

The victim’s family

At their residence in Barangay San Jose, Vivencia Bulalacao Rapinan, the mother of the victim, looks intently at her daughter’s face through the casket, as if seeking for answers.

In an interview with the Bicol Standard, she revealed she feels a mixture of hatred and fear over what happened to her daughter.

“Ai-ai,” as Vivencia fondly calls her daught, had been looking for money to fund her child’s baptism, which was slated on Saturday, June 23.

She knew about the amorous relationship between her daughter and the priest, she said.

“It had been going on for some time already,” she said.

Ai-ai previously served as a helper in the residence of the priest, she noted. She stayed for ten years in said house.

While the interview was ongoing, the victim’s cousin and bestfriend, Sherilyn Rapinan, came forward to volunteer information.

She confirmed outright that her friend had a relationship with the priest.

“I know this because Ai-ai and I kept no secret from each other,” she said.

The victim informed her that she would be meeting somebody at the Diversion Road in Baao for about 15 minutes. Ai-ai said she was expecting said person to give her money for the baptism.

Asked whether the person was the father of the child, she answered “yes.”

When Ai-ai did not return after an hour, she started to worry.

“I tried calling her on her cellphone. It kept ringing, but no one was picking up,” Sherilyn narrated.

Someone texted her using Ai-ai’s number. The message said that she would not be going home that night.

She started to suspect that something was wrong because it was unusual for Ai-ai to suddenly decide not to go home.

“In fact she had no extra clothes with her, and her child was left at home,” she said.

Finally, the phone died, and she lost contact with Ai-ai’s phone.

Other reports

Meanwhile, other residents of Baao reported that there is another woman from the Rinconada area who also has an intimate relationship with the person of interest.

This information is still being scrutinized by the investigators.

Mayor Besinio

Baao Mayor Jeff Besinio said that many had been going to his office since the incident occurred, asking to verify rumors.

“I have already instructed the police to exert extra effort in finding information,” he said.

He would not give additional data as investigation is still pending.

Baao police

When Bicol Standard sought information from the Baao Municipal Police Station, the news team was told that the local police helped in the preparation of the affidavit of the mother.

They could not give additional details, however, as the case occurred within the jurisdiction of San Fernando Municipal Police Station.

At 5p.m., the chiefs of police of San Fernando and Baao are having a case conference in Baao, Camarines Sur.

Bicol Standard has not been able to contact the person of interest for his side of the story, as of this writing.

EDITORIAL | Road safety

Road accidents make the news on a daily basis, but they are often dismissed as “just another one of those incidents”—that is, until the accident happens to someone the community considers to be more vulnerable than usual.

Take the case, for instance, of Jeana Margaux Balintisayo, a 7-year-old grade 2 pupil of Sta. Cruz Elementary School, who was killed after she was hit by a car near the school premises a few days after school reopened.

Bicol Standard’s source said Balintasayo’s father had just taken his daughter’s lunch to her a few minutes before the accident.

Jeana, the source narrated, asked for two pesos from her father to purchase something from the store near her school.

Allegedly, she did not see the car coming because she was focused on a pedicab that was also on the street.

Jeana’s story went viral on social media, prompting parents to hug their kids and heap words of love to them. The incident, which was caught on CCTV, was one that could have happened to anyone’s child.

As expected, there was a lot of finger-pointing after the incident. Netizens took to Facebook to put the blame on the authorities and community and school leaders, who they said should have made the school zone safe.

But the blame game, however, does not recover the life of Jeana, nor does it console the family and friends who lost her.

What it does achieve, however, is a renewed focus on road accidents, and the vulnerability of children in such incidents.

The World Health Organization says that road traffic injuries are a global public health problem, what with about 1.3 million people dying each year on the world's roads and between 20 and 50 million sustaining non-fatal injuries.

Taking a proactive stance towards road safety is the Land Transportation Office in Bicol, under the leadership of Regional Director Atty. Noreen San-Luis Lutey.

For year, San Luis-Lutey has rallied for road safety education, stressing that it should be introduced as early as the formative elementary years, because it is the youth who will one day become road users.

Under the Students Today, Road Users Tomorrow program, the Regional Director partners with schools and the private sector to educate the public on road laws and general road safety tips.

Road accidents are common, but they are also preventable if proper safety measures are taken into account. These include, as WHO says, following traffic rules, controlling speed, avoiding drinking and driving, wearing a good-quality helmet, wearing a seatbelt, and using appropriate child restraints. Access to timely and effective emergency care after traffic crashes, as well as ensuring that vehicles and road infrastructures meet high standards, are also necessary measures in preventing accidents.

Lastly, it should be underscored that road safety is not the sole responsibility of the LTO, or any other government agency. The entire community should participate in the campaign by taking to heart each person’s responsibility in keeping our roads safe.


P1.25M worth of shabu seized in Albay

DARAGA, Albay (Bicol Standard) -- A buy-bust operation led by Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency Albay at an inn in this town led to the confiscation of shabu with a street value of more or less P1.25M at around 12:10 and 1 a.m. on Friday.

Arrested were Marlon Fernandez y Llenas a.k.a “Bok Fernandez”, 40 y/o, single, a resident of Brgy. Iraya, Guinobatan, Albay; Lorraine Santiago y Casilum, 28 y/o, single, a resident of Blk 7 Lot 4 Phase 1, Antipolo City; and Elmeph Conciado y Calimutan, 37 y/o, married, a resident of No. 17 Sinuna Village, Brgy. Mambugan, Antipolo City who were at Room 61 of the inn; and Josdm Tabuena y Bartolata Jr a.k.a “Third”, 55 y/o, married, a resident of No. 33 First Park Subd., Brgy. Sagpon, Daraga, Albay; Jan Mark Rapisura y Balguma a.k.a “Matik”, 32 y/o, a residents of Brgy. Travesia, Guinobatan, Albay; Jomel Dela Cruz y Orpiada, 21 y/o, single, a resident of Brgy. Dunao, Ligao City, who were at Room 49 of the same location.

PDEA was able to recover around 300 grams of shabu, buy-bust money, and other non-drug items.

Presently, the suspects are under the custody of the PDEA.

DepEd under Briones administration gains highest approval rating in latest Pulse survey

The latest Pulse Asia Ulat ng Bayan Survey revealed that the Department of Education (DepEd) enjoyed the highest approval rating under the leadership of Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones.

During the Briones administration, DepEd’s year-on-year approval rating – 83% in March 2017 and 84% March 2018 – has reached the highest levels since 2005 and significantly gained traction since the Education chief introduced several reforms.

“This is definitely a notable result; it means that our efforts to deliver our mandate for the learners, teachers, and stakeholders are paying off. It means that quality basic education is reaching more learners, in and outside formal school, is becoming more relevant to their aspirations, and is improving their chances at better opportunities in life,” Education Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones said.

The awareness and performance survey was conducted between March 23 and 28, with a sample size of 1,200 respondents from the National Capital Region (NCR), Balance Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao, and with a ± 3 margin of error.

The current rating constitutes high performance approval of DepEd across areas, gender, and socio-economic class.

Part of Secretary Briones’s agenda is to ensure that out-of-school children and youth (OSCY), as well as adult lifelong learners, are brought back into the fold of education. Since the Secretary assumed office, the Department has intensified its efforts to provide them with better access to quality basic education.

The Philippine Statistic Authority’s (PSA) Annual Poverty Indicators Survey (APIS) describes OSCY as “family members six to 14 years old who are not attending formal school; and family members 15 to 24 years old who are currently out of school, not gainfully employed, and have not finished college or post-secondary course.”

The 2017 APIS yielded that of the estimated 39.2 million Filipinos six to 24 years old, 9% or 3.6 million were OSCY – a reduction from the 10% OSCY among 39 million Filipinos aged six to 24 as registered by the 2016 APIS.

In the 2016 APIS, high cost of education/financial concern ranked second at 20.2% as a reason for the OSCY’s non-attendance of school. In the 2017 APIS, financial difficulty dropped to third place and the number of OSCY citing it as a reason for being out of school declined to 17.9%.

“We have pushed for the full implementation of the K to 12 Basic Education Program and with it are programs that will ensure inclusiveness. We have Balik-Aral for returning learners, and we have the Senior High School (SHS) that equips basic education learners with further knowledge and skills needed for competency in the 21st century,” the Education chief stated.

The Secretary further noted that with the SHS Voucher Program (SHS VP) and Education Service Contracting (ESC), more learners are able to pursue basic education in private schools despite difficulty in finances: “More than subsidies, these programs reflect the government’s commitment to helping ensure that more Filipino children have access to quality education, have the capacity to stay in school, and have equal chances at improving their lives and contributing to the development of the country.”

LTO Bicol cautions public on road accidents

Photo: LTO Bicol
NAGA CITY (Bicol Standard) – Land Transportation Office Regional Director for Bicol Atty. Noreen San Luis-Lutey announced that their office is conducting a series of information dissemination about LTO laws and road safety education. 

“We have activated Oplan Balik Eskwela to minimize traffic congestion and attend to the safety of students and parents,” she explained.

“Reminding pedestrians and motorists about road safety is especially important during the opening of classes, when a surge of road accidents is often recorded,” she said.

Among the laws on which the LTO focuses are the RA 10666, an Act Providing Road Safety of Children aboard Motorcycles and RA 10054 known as the Motorcycle Helmet Law.

“In addition, we are working to integrate our Students Today, Road Users Tomorrow (STRUT) campaign into the curriculum,” she told the Bicol Standard.

“STRUT is a necessary step to take in the name of safety. We are excited to see the program in all schools in the country for safer roads,” she said.

Just this week, road accidents were recorded in the towns of Milaor, Pasacao, Bula, Nabua, and Pili in Camarines Sur alone in two days’ time.

PILI, Camarines Sur (Bicol Standard) –The Board of Regents of CBSUA has voted to oust Georgina J. Bordado as Office-in-Charge (OIC) of the University during their meeting earlier on Thursday.

According to the information related to the BICOL STANDARD, the Board called for a division of the house to settle the issue regarding the controversial designation of Bordado as OIC of the said university.

Five members of the Board of Regents voted to remove Bordado as OIC while two others voted in her favor.

It will be recalled that Bordado’s appointment as President of the Central Bicol State University of Agriculture expired last April 2.

Upon the expiration of her term, she was allowed to take over as OIC in a holdover capacity, pending resolution of a legal issue that was tossed to the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) to decide.

Meanwhile, it was also learned that the CHED en banc decided to allow the BOR to pass upon the issue, since it is incumbent upon them to appoint the University President.

The controversy regarding Bordado’s designation as OIC started when she applied for reappointment as University President.

The rules require that an incumbent president seeking reappointment, should not exceed the mandatory retirement age of 65 years old, and should get a double outstanding rating.

The double outstanding rating means a unanimous vote coming from the members of the Evaluation Committee, along with a unanimous vote of the members of the Board of Regents.

In the case of Bordado whose age will be more that 65 if she is given a second term as University President, she failed to obtain a unanimous vote from the members of the Board of Regents.

It was earlier reported that Engr. Henry Mabesa, Jr., who represents the faculty in the Board of Regents, and Department of Agriculture Bicol Regional Director Elena de los Santos did not vote for the reappointment of Bordado.

After Bordado was ousted as OIC of CBSUA, the BOR designated Engr. Rolando De Asis as Officer-in-Charge.

De Asis is the Vice President for Academic Affairs.

Bordado’s holdover capacity designation will expire on June 15, 2018.

In a related development, the CHED en banc upheld Commission Memorandum Order (CMO) No.16 (on the double outstanding rating) as valid and legal, after the Commission’s legal opinion was sought by the Board of Regents.

During the meeting, the items that were approved during the board meeting include the opening of the search for the new President of CBSUA; and the search of the Evaluation Committee for two private sector representatives who will be appointed as members of the Board of Regents.

Before the board meeting ended, Bordado requested that she be allowed a sabbatical leave, which the board granted.

Gov. Pimentel heeds gripes of CNorte trike drivers, operators vs TRAIN law

DAET, Camarines Norte (Bicol Standard)—Gov. Jonah Pimentel has assured the Camarines Norte Federation of Tricycle Operators and Drivers Association (CANFETODA) of his support after the group aired their concern over the effects of the TRAIN Law on tricycle operators.

In the 92nd Regular Session of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan earlier this week, CANFETODA President Benito Ilan sought the help of the SP to address the issues affecting their group.

According to Ilan, the Bureau of Internal Revenue’s requirement of P150 daily from the tricycle operators’ group is too burdensome, as their earnings are meager and largely insufficient to meet the requirement.

This, he said, is on top of the P500 annual registration fee.

He further explained that the BIR has announced that those who do not make it to the June 30 deadline for the Income Tax Return will be charged with a penalty.

In response, the Sangguniang Panlalawigan said that the fees were not imposed arbitrarily.

However, the concerns of the tricycle operators’ group should also be given consideration, especially because their livelihood is affected.

Heeding these concerns, Gov. Pimentel said he will provide lawyers who will attend to the requests of the CANFETODA.

Meantime, the Sangguniang Panlalawigan assured its support by stating that it will pass a resolution recognizing the concerns of the transport group.

In a related development, President Rodrigo Duterte recently said that suspending or scrapping the TRAIN Law will undermine the delivery of basic services.

The TRAIN Law, it would be noted, has been receiving backlash and blame for the rising prices of commodities.

By Priam Nepomuceno

MANILA -- Aside from humanitarian assistance and disaster relief missions (HADR), the Joint Task Force "Bicolandia" was activated to protect the Bicol Region's thriving tourism industry.

However, this does not mean that the area is infiltrated with communist rebels and other threat groups, Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) public affairs office chief Col. Noel Detoyato said Tuesday.

"(The rebels are weak there but) one or two people can create gulo (trouble which could affect the tourism industry of the entire region)," Detoyato stressed.

He added that Joint Task Force "Bicolandia" was formed with anti-terrorism, HADR missions in mind.

"(Joint Task Force 'Bicolandia' was formed for) anti-terrorism and HADR (work) pero lamang ang HADR dun dahil laging may (natural disasters in the Bicol Region)," Detoyato stressed.

He also said the unit aims to integrate air, sea, and land units in the area to fully secure the entire Bicol Region with its six provinces, including the offshore island provinces of Masbate and Catanduanes.

Joint Task Force "Bicolandia" was activated last June 11 and will be headed by 9th Infantry Division commander Major Gen. Jesus Manangquil, Jr.

The unit will be under the direct command and supervision of Southern Luzon Command chief Lt. Gen. Danilo Pamonag, Detoyato added.

"'Bicolandia' will perform the vital task of protecting from security threats the region's budding economic landscape, vast agricultural sector, and popular tourist hubs, as well as in orchestrating joint operations in response to emergency situations," he stressed.

It will take under its helm the entire 9th Infantry Division supported by the Tactical Operations Group 5 and the Naval Forces Southern Luzon. (PNA)

SC condemns killing of Judge Begino

Senior Associate Justice and Acting Chief Justice Antonio T. Carpio has condemned in the strongest possible terms the killing of Presiding Judge Ricky Begino of the MCTC of San Jose-Lagonoy, Camarines Sur.

In a statement this morning, he said he extends condolences to the bereaved family and calls on the authorities concerned to take all necessary steps with all deliberate speed to do justice for Judge Begino by filly investigating his killing.

Meantime, Sen. Chiz Escudero also gave the following statement: "I condemn in the strongest possible words the killing of Camarines Sur MCTC Judge Ricky Begino. I call on the PNP to immediately bring to the bar of justice the perpetrators of this dastardly act. This cannot and should not be allowed to pass!"

Begino was shot in Presentacion, Camarines Sur Tuesday afternoon near his residence.


Suspect in Judge Begino slay falls

NAGA CITY (Bicol Standard) – The principal suspect in the murder of 50-year-old Municipal Trial Court Judge Ricky Begino was arrested this morning in Presentacion, Camarines Sur.

This was relayed to the Bicol Standard by Agnes Begino, the younger sister of the victim.

The 73-year-old suspect Wilfredo Armea y Bruzo shot the presiding judge of MTC San Jose and Lagonoy at close range at around 5 p.m. Tuesday at Zone 3, Barangay Sta. Maria.

Agnes Begino said the judge was about to send off his wife who was going to Naga City when he was spotted by the suspect.

Armea, according to witnesses, approached the judge from behind with a concealed gun and immediately shot him.

Judge Begino was hit in the back of his body. The bullet penetrated his spinal column and exited through his neck.

Stunned, several witnesses responded by throwing stones at the suspect, who retaliated by firing gunshots in their direction.

Said witnesses tried calling for help from the municipal government, who said that their ambulance was unavailable.

The family decided to borrow an ambulance from Lagonoy, which is around an hour away from Presentacion.

At that point, the judge had already lost a lot of blood.

He was rushed to NICC Hospital in Naga City for medical attention. However, he expired at around 7:30 pm.

Meantime, the police tried to get hold of the suspect and were able to finally arrest him earlier today.


The Begino family clarified that the land dispute, which was earlier reported to be the motive of the shooting, has been settled for years.

Another angle they are considering is that allegedly, the suspect was seeking the judge’s help in a case, which is pending in court.

No details, however, on said case are available as of this writing.


Netizens from all over Bicol took to Facebook to express their condolences, saying that the judge was well-loved, impartial, and humble.

They recalled how Judge Begino was a working student who served as a mailman all throughout his law school years at University of Nueva Caceres.

He was the former president of the Municipal Trial Court Judges Association in Camarines Sur.

His remains are currently in Funeraria Imperial along Penafrancia Avenue, Naga City.

Bicol int’l airport eyed for completion by 2020

By Connie Calipay

DARAGA, Albay -- The local government of Daraga has urged the local police to strengthen security measures in the town, as construction activity is ramping up at the Bicol International Airport (BAI).

"The BIA located in Brgy. Alobo, is well underway and is estimated to go operational by 2020,” said Daraga Mayor Carlwyn Baldo in an interview Wednesday.

Baldo has called on the Daraga Security Council (DSC) to enforce and maintain strict security procedures during the construction and operation of the BIA.

“The construction of the said airport was projected to be finished by 2016, but there were several cases of harassment from terrorist groups that stalled the process," said the mayor.

Daraga Chief of Police, El Cid Roldan vowed he would double their efforts in securing the ongoing construction despite the insufficiency of manpower.

The Aviation Security Group said it would deploy the necessary personnel and place respective substations in order to ensure the security of the airport and the safety of the people within and outside the premises.

“Daraga’s economy is booming and as we are heading towards city status, we will make sure that additional security measures are implemented throughout the municipality,” added Baldo. (PNA)
